Temperature control system

I installed a wireless thermostat into my home a little over a year ago. Now that I’ve become used to the many conveniences it gives you, I can’t imagine life without the need of it. The wireless thermostat is directly linked with my HVAC equipment and connected to the internet, allowing me to regulate temperature […]

Multi-stage filtration

I often like to visit antique stores, flea marketplaces, and garage sales, looking for old, wood furniture. I watch for furniture pieces that are constructed of hardwood and require some fixing up. If the furniture is painted over or requires fixing, it normally sells for quite the low price. I then repair the furniture to […]

Scheduling service for my heater

Not too long ago, I hired a general contractor to do some renovations in my house. I had hoped to do the project over the summer season, when I could open windows and not have the dust trapped inside.

What’s going on with the weather?

I feel like such a dope when I don’t dress right for the weather. Sometimes it’s been warm out for days and I go out in my light dress or sandals, when all of a sudden it gets cold again, unexpectedly. Then I feel like the only person around who got it wrong, while other […]

Getting a new heat pump system

My husband Bill is a great guy, but he’s just a dreamer. He likes to pretend he’s going to do all sorts of projects for me. He says he’ll install a hot tub on the deck and enlarge my closet so I have room for all my shoes. Nice plans, but I know they will […]

A fairly simple process

It wasn’t until I moved out west, I saw it never heard of a swamp cooler. When the real estate agent said that my new home was suited with a swamp cooler, I guessed she was talking about some soaked, marshy area in the back. After doing a bit of research, I realized that a […]
